The Human Highlight Reel...
 
no no, not a great player. Not a big rugged D-man.. Not even a brilliant Puck Stopper.

no no, this is a guy who MAKES YOU a highlight real.

I think every team in the NHL has a player who's had a bedroom Wall poster Material Hit on Boyd Devereaux.

He got LEVELED again tonight against Carolina. Hes been LEVELED 3 or 4 games straight now. And has probably been LEVELED 20 times this year. This guy cant carry the puck with out looking at it, so he skates across center ice or into zones with his head down.

probably the only guy in the NHL who could make Maxim Kuznetsov look like a menace patrolling his Blue Line.

I think they're people who pray to god instead of seeking medical attention? There's a couple of them where I grew up in Philly.

Craig Simpson

Between doing that and doing the practices...i doubt he has the time to fly around and do colour comentary for games...what about you?


I might be totally wrong, but I think Ironchef was referring to the EA NHL games, where Craig Simpson has replaced Don Taylor as the color commentator on the post-2002 editions of the game

Mongoloid? No. But Devereaux was left borderline stupid by the Dallas Drake hit that almost ended his career, and shouldn't have returned to hockey. I believe he went to nearly a dozen neurologists before he finally found one who'd declare him medically sound to play in the NHL.

The addition of Craig was to make it sound more professional and real...personally i'd love to have Shorthouse and Lange (pens broadcaster) together in a game...sweetness.

Taylor rules.

Devereaux is just proving that Hull and Datsyuk carried his worthless ass the one year he was anything resembling productive for the Wings.

Stupid noises like "gnaaaayayaya" is not funny, unless your 2yrs old.

Taylor rules.

zetterberg40 01-02-2004 09:22 PM

devereaux has gotta be the worst player ive seen for the wings in years... he just CANT SKATE for ****...

side note: he's a RFA this year (devereaux).... HOLLAND, YOU BETTER NOT RESIGN HIM... (how come i got a feeling that if dev's is resigned, its gonna be for 2 mill a year since he loves overpaying everyone?)

kira 01-02-2004 09:36 PM

Are you implying in a roundabout way that you think Pasha is overpaid? If you are, you better not let me find you... ;)

I mean, in the way they seem to get leveled at every opportunity... I remember Simpson being roughed up quite a bit back in the day, but he'd always come back... to take more punishment.

dats-13 01-03-2004 03:58 AM

i thought Mongoloids were inbred mountain folk with huge feet on a small body with very large heads and when they run they run with this awkward gimp.....

Vincent Vega 01-03-2004 04:12 AM

Boyd Deveraux is useless. I will be so angry if he is still playing ahead of Mowers or Williams when everyone gets healthy again. Ken Holland, be smart, DONT RESIGN HIM! I hope you like playing hockey in Europe Boyd!

You might be thinking of the Amish.

Simpson is just boring. Plain boring.

May I suggest that you do not use a word that you don't even know the definition of (let alone how to spell).

From Dictionary.com:

Mongoloid
1. Anthropology. Of or being a major human racial classification traditionally distinguished by physical characteristics such as yellowish-brown skin pigmentation, straight black hair, dark eyes with pronounced epicanthic folds, and prominent cheekbones and including peoples indigenous to central and eastern Asia. Not in scientific use.

2. Characteristic of or resembling a Mongol.

3. Offensive. Of or relating to Down syndrome.
